Our students loved getting the Summer Reading books. They were pulling the books out and reading them immediately!

With the books we had left over we stocked our newly constructed Little Free Libraries. Our students and fathers helped build and paint these libraries. There are 6 of these around the town of Liberty.

Thank you for all that you do to encourage children to read.

Hi Frank,
I want to say thank you for getting all the books to us by Friday. We launched our reading month with a pep rally on Friday and then the students returned to class and picked their book to read. We could not have done this if the books weren’t here. I can’t thank you enough. You have also started our set of eight books for next year with the arrival of Freedom Stone. I’ll definitely spread the word on the Reading Warehouse in our area.

Again, thank you.

When we talked at the Symposium for First Year Teachers and I asked about books for the Induction Teachers in my district, I was pleased to hear you would ship some materials to me. What a grand surprise when THREE boxes arrived!! I am most grateful of the variety of books and the canvas totes you sent me to share with the Induction Teachers in Spartanburg School District 7. This provided a good start on the libraries they will create in each of their classrooms. Your support of our teachers is appreciated.

Many, many thanks;

I'm not sure if you personally handle matters like this, but I wanted to let Reading Warehouse know that my colleagues and I at Big Elm Elementary in WV are so pleased with our recent order. We received everything we wanted and MORE and are all so impressed with the quality of the materials.

The personnel at Reading Warehouse has been friendly and cooperative throughout and I couldn't be happier. I will definitely be making future purchases with Reading Warehouse.

Thank you all again!!

Hi! I apologize for not writing this sooner. Just wanted to let you know that I did indeed receive my book order before the students left for Christmas break. The selection was excellent and I was especially pleased that there were multiple copies of the same titles. It will make for great book discussions!

Again thank you for your willingness to accommodate on such short notice!

Hope your new year is off to a grand start!

Thanks for your prompt attention in getting this matter straightened out. I have received the corrected book order and they are just what I was looking for. I will let other teachers know that you have made things right. Also, thanks for letting me distribute the original order among other teachers.

OMGosh! Ms. Wood, our school librarian, just sent me a copy of the correspondence between the two of you regarding "Grow Your Heart Three Sizes Promotional Materials." THANK YOU so much for your shared love of reading and your willingness to help us foster the love of reading with our students. I love that big, wonderful book you sent in the kit (How the Grinch Stole Christmas). I can't wait for our kids to be involved in yet another school wide literacy initiative. You and The Reading Warehouse rock!!!

OMIGOODNESS!!! Thank you SO MUCH! I am so excited about implementing this fun program. We have an all-out reading initiative at our school this year, and this promotion will help make Christmas-tide about reading as well as about it's true meaning. I really appreciate your personal attention, and you will get pictures!! Merry Grinch-mas!

I will definitely recommend your company to the people I work with, Cathy

I had a great experience with Books Rock Café Book Fair. The staff was extremely helpful. We advertised the fair on the school radio station and posted flyers throughout the school. In addition, we gave parents information at curriculum night. During our curriculum night, parents could visit the media center and use computers to order books. We sent an automated message to all students using our parent caller system and announced the book fair on facebook. We are excited about another fair in the future!

I am pleased and impressed with the speed in which your company filled my order. I was also impressed that I was able to get all the discount books I ordered except one. Job well done on your part!
As soon as I get more money for library purchases I will again place an order with the Reading Warehouse.
Thank you for providing quality books at prices we can afford in this economy!!!!!
Again, Thank-you. I am one very happy/satisfied customer!!!!

Norma F

I have never had book fair success at the high school level until I tried Books Rock Cafe! It was a GREAT experience! My students and parents are begging for another one. The prices are good, the book rewards are good and it is easy to use. I asked my teachers for a list of required reading titles and included that list in the information about the book fair. The books were shipped to my school as soon as the Book Fair ended. Very happy with the service! I will definitely have another book fair in the spring for our summer reading list!

I recently received an unexpected box here at my school and was absolutely overjoyed when I opened it to find I was a winner of one of your weekly book giveaways! Many of my ninth graders (several are struggling readers) are already reading one of the books. Some have even latched on to the SAT vocabulary flashcards you included. The books I've received from you have really been a great addition to my classroom library. Thanks so much.

I left you a message last night. Did you receive it?
Thank you so much for the quick response to my email. I am impressed with your customer service. Honestly, I didn't expect to hear back from anyone.
My school system is in session through Wednesday, so I would appreciate if you could send me replacement books for those that I can't give as gifts. It really is only about 8 or so.
Thank you so much!

THANK YOU for the free box of books I won for Yulee Middle School!

I was so surprised to walk into my room and see a huge box on my desk. The box had Dora Playkit on the side so I was puzzled knowing that I had not ordered anything relating to Dora. But my name was on the label so I opened to see what was in it. I had a letter informing me that I was a winner of this box of books from The Reading Warehouse. I had signed up at the first of the year. The box contained a great variety of books one of which I had been meaning to read for at least a year. I stocked my classroom library with new books and shared some of the books with my fellow teachers along with your website information.

Thank you, again! Keep up the good work in making books affordable for the classrooms across the country. I look forward to your next promotion!

Dear Jeff and Frank, Many thanks for creating a book fair that was simply as easy as: ordering fiction and nonfiction book amounts and delivery on my desired dates, creating uncomplicated displays by unpacking boxes, my being able to set a price that the children at my poor rural school could afford, trouble-free counting and packing up the few unsold books for UPS pick up, and an uncomplicated book fair close out through your website. My primary school of 580 students is located in a poor, rural area. It was a joy to see our students excitedly choose a $3 dollar paperback or $5 hardback fiction or nonfiction book to add to their own book collection. Teachers and I were ecstatic at the fantastic book selection that included numerous Caldecotts, classic favorites, popular authors, and a wide variety of nonfiction books on popular children subjects at different text levels. A phone call to Jeff or Frank answered all of my questions as they provided excellent customer service. As a reward to our teachers, I used an idea similar to a teacher wish list that would expand our teachers’ classroom libraries by sending home the following note home to our parents.

“Great Books for Great Teachers”
Dear Parents,
If you would like to donate a book to your child’s classroom, you can purchase one from the book fair for only $5. Teachers then will be able to select a hard cover book. Your child can write a note and his name inside the front book cover. These books will be great additions to our teachers’ classroom libraries. This generous gift would send a special thank you to our teachers for all of their hard work. Thank you for your support, Mrs. Becky

The response was a tremendous success as children with or without their teacher independently chose a great book to add to their classroom. Teachers bragged about several of the student notes to them that had been written on the inside cover. What a great memory for a teacher to read, enjoy, and treasure. My book fair was held for six days, $3370 was collected, and I made a $1000 dollar profit to add new resources to the library. This was fantastic, especially these days when our library dollars are getting harder and harder to receive. Jeff and Frank, thank you once again for sharing the joy of reading with our students and planting seeds to promote literacy.
With much appreciation,

Hi Frank,

I wanted to thank you for your prompt response to my email. We have been out of school the past two days due to snow. As a result, I haven't been able to get the packing slip to pass the ISBN along yet. I will get it when we return (I would guess Monday).

Also, I wanted to tell you that your company has been the most reliable with the best service that we've ordered books from thus far. So, no worries about the missing one. I will get you the packing info as soon as possible.

Thank You, Leslie Y

First, allow me to apologize for taking so long to write this note of thanks. I have been in training and meeting for the last two weeks.
A million thanks go out to your company and Karla for taking the time to send Karla to Palm Beach Lakes High to help sort books into genres. Karla even told me if I need assistance during the summer or any other time to let her know and she will be glad to assist me. I, nor has any other reading coach, never ever heard of a book company coming to a school center to help sort books. I have put the word out that not only are you the best in price but number one in customer satisfaction.
I will continue to order from your company. I have passed the word to other teachers, coaches and media specialist.
Thank you again,

The following was posted on a Homeschooling Site in the State of Pennsylvania.

The Reading Warehouse is a HUGE online bookstore that is exceptionally well-organized, with clear categories and sub-categories, and many ways to search for titles and authors and topics of interest. Many homeschoolers really appreciate their regular 30% discount on most books, and their shipping fees are very reasonable. This site does NOT carry any textbooks, but is filled with books for children and adults on all topics that will round out your homeschooling curriculum with 'real books'. And a company representative let me know that they carefully screen out any 'x-rated' titles, so you can feel comfortable searching on the site. A wide range of books on religious topics are on the site, including hundred and hundreds of books from the Christian and Jewish traditions. Lots for everyone!

The Power of Bulk Buying

What was I thinking, buying copies of my book from my publisher?! If I order them from the Reading Warehouse, I can get 'em for $0.75 cheaper!

I received my shipment of books. Thanks so much for all the extra goodies. My five year old really enjoyed the Stuart Little book. The pencils will make great prizes for my reading book club. It is nice to order from a company where I am treated so nicely.

Thanks for the QUICK responses from you and your webmaster. I appreciate your answer. I forwarded your site to our librarian and will forward to our resource teachers. I will be purchasing some items when I start shopping with my discretionary funds.

Thanks again.

Thank you for the awesome packing job! Our books arrived and we were able to easily check them in and ship them out to schools. We really appreciate your efforts to clearly label everything and, to the extent possible, to pack class sets together.

Thanks again for your help!

Kind regards,

Dear Frank,
Just a note to let you know how much I appreciate your
help. My book order arrived and I am so pleased with my
books. Thanks for making the free shipping available and
thanks for taking time to answer my questions. Rest
assured that Reading Warehouse will be my pick for
ordering books online. Thanks again for all your help.


The Reading Warehouse is a great boon to money strapped teachers trying to build a classroom library. Thank you so much for your courtesy and attention.

Thanks for the extra mouse pads and books!! They are great!! I just made a personal order of some of the books that were included in the New Voices! Thanks for throwing that in!

Wow...thanks for the prompt and generous response. I will keep The Reading Warehouse in mind as I will be teaching more nursing courses in the future. I also appreciate your efforts regarding the misleading information in advertising the Mosby DVD.
Have a fun 4th of July!

Thank you Frank. I appreciate your responding back.
Thank you also for the extra books. It was not necessary although I must say I look forward to receiving all my books.
Any teacher loves getting books for their class.
I will have another order to send soon.
Thanks for the follow up.
That is good customer service, well appreciated.


Good afternoon,
Thank you so much for getting back to me. It is nice to hear from a real person when contacting a company about a concern.
I am afraid that I will need the book sooner than it will come in. I will need to go to the University store and purchase it tomorrow before class.

Thank you for explaining the situation to me.

Again, I love this company, and now I love the customer service aspect of it also.

Wow....it is cool to know that a suggestion made to your company is taken
seriously! My friend who recommended your company called me to say that
she ordered on Monday last week and received a COMPLETE shipment on
Thursday....and all the books were in perfect condition. Thanks for
providing such great service.

Hello, there!
I just ordered 105 copies of Maniac Magee by Jerry Spinelli. Now I'm wondering if you have all those copies in stock? I'm hoping to receive the order by Wednesday, March 26th. Please let me know if this is possible!
Your website was great, by the way.

Hey Patti

Let me get this straight we are suppose to actually carry the books we advertise and you want them quickly, that is your question?

Just kidding we actually love these type calls and emails as we normally make everyone happy and in this case I hope we will have done the same. We actually have thousands in stock and your order should be to you by Monday. Maybe even this Friday if you have been real nice to your UPS driver :-)

We love taking care of our customers and it made my day to see that you liked our site. If I can ever help or you just need someone to give you a hard time please call or email anytime.

Frank Bowdoin
Director Of Sales

Hey, Frank -

Wow! Now, that's customer service! With replies like that, you can be sure I will always shop reading warehouse first. Especially when I need someone to give me a hard time!


Note: Patti got all 105 books in two shipping days.

Hey Frank,

Thank you again for your assistance and congeniality!
I have forwarded your web address to everyone in my address book! (Probably fifty-some folks)
Good old-fashioned service is a precious commodity, and I had to share that with my family and friends.
One of them already wrote back saying I saved her a stressful trip to Barnes and Noble... she has 3 little kids.
Another lives in the way mountains, so she was elated.

Your newest devoted customer,

You're a gentleman! Thank you so much for walking me through this first order. I wasn't lying when I said I'll shop with you forever!

Hello There,

Thanks for letting me know about the shipping and helping out on this. Frankly, we tried to get the copies of the book from the other web-based book distributors...in addition to not having the books in stock somewhere, which you guys did have, it is also nice to be able to deal with people who can help you out. Just getting a phone number for amazon.com is an ordeal. I really appreciate the service you guys are providing.


Gerard G

Thank you so much for your amazing customer service! I will certainly tell everyone I know where to find the best prices on books!
Thanks again!!

Dear Frank,

Thanks so much for all your effort. You have definitely gone above and beyond for us. I will contact the publisher and see what rate they will charge us and if it is too expensive, we will come up with a plan B. I appreciate the heads up as quickly as you could so that we could be prepared. I will definitely recommend your company to others, though. You are great!

I can’t believe that I received my order today! What fabulous service and great product. Please email an invoice so that I can get this paid in a timely fashion. Thanks so much! We look forward to placing our next order soon.

Hello Frank,
Thanks for the speed of delivery. I adore doing business with you and The Reading Warehouse.

If only every company’s customer service was as prompt and courteous as you, it would be a wonderful thing. You don’t know how much I appreciate your taking time to notify me about the order and then give an update. It restores my faith in retail. I feel your frustration with the publisher and know you’ve done everything you could to expedite the order. Whenever you get it and send it will be fine. Thanks again for you attention to the matter.

We have much to be thankful for and appreciate this special day to thank God for His blessings.

Margaret C

Thank you very much!

I really appreciate this kind of customer support. It's SO rare these days. I will definitely use your company again!

Hello Educators,

I recently began working with a company, “The Reading Warehouse”, that I wanted to share with all of you. As you know, I order a LOT of books over the course of a year with all of my workshops and they are by far the easiest, most reliable and most economical choice I have ever used for any of my workshops. They offer excellent discounts, and great personal customer service which is important for ordering large-scale book order numbers for workshops and setting up our governmental/ non-profit accounts. Their prices are very competitive and although you have to pay shipping, their prices were still lower on all of my titles than I could have received anywhere. They bent over backwards to find the weird nature titles from the smaller publishers that we all use like “Dawn Publishing” and they had all my books to me within a couple of days. They let you email them your order and they check for extra publisher or shipping discounts they can find for you. Set up specifically for educators, they tailor their business to accept purchase orders, etc. and offer a great online store but I must admit I have called their 1-866 phone number more often than email and worked with them directly over the phone- ask for Frank, he is now a nature center supply wizard. You must check them out at www.thereadingwarehouse.com. Their website even offers lesson plans for some of my great nature book favorites even like this new favorite from The Reading Warehouse:

Little Skink’s Tail by Janet Halfmann
Ages Prek-3rd
EE Stage: Appreciation; Early Exploration

One of the most scientifically accurate children’s fiction I have found and the only account of skink natural history I have ever found combined with a charming story of how Little skink loses his tail (as we all know truly happens) when attacked by a crow. He then wonders through the forest and studies the tails of other forest creatures while examining what special adaptations and features each tail offers to defend or assist that creature (Owl silent feathers; skunk smell; etc.). Soon he realizes his own tail has regenerated (as truly happens- I LOVE this book) and he is happy to be himself again. A must have title for all of our Herp programs! This book just came out on August 10th – go order your copy from The Reading Warehouse - you will love them.

The Reading Warehouse (www.thereadingwarehouse.com) is your answer. The question is: Where is a great site to find books quickly and inexpensively?

--Looking for graduation presents for any age person?

--Looking for the titles on that pesky summer reading list?

--Looking for ideas?

--Looking for books by grade or Lexile level?

This is the place.

Not all book Web sites are created equal. The Reading Warehouse has several features that set it apart. With 6 million titles, 10 million by the end of summer, you are highly likely to find what you want. If a publisher happens to be out of a book, Reading Warehouse will tell you that rather than automatically put your request on back-order. Also, if you don't like to type your credit card number online, you can place your order and then phone in your method of payment.

Prices are 30 percent (or more) off every day. Time-honored (or excoriated, depending on your point of view) titles such as "To Kill a Mockingbird" ($4.82) and "Animal Farm" ($5.49) are right there at the mouse click.

For parents who wish they'd never heard of Accelerated Reading levels and Lexile levels, this site eliminates those headaches by automatically translating the levels into titles. This site speaks the language of schools. You can even search for books by Accelerated Reading levels, Accelerated Reading quiz numbers and Lexile levels. You also can search by the usual keyword, author, title and subject.

For those of you who are anticipating August, school supplies also are available.

"Reading Rewards" is the Reading Warehouse program that gives 1 percent of purchases back to participating schools and nonprofit organizations. Spread the word. This could be a no-sweat fundraiser for your school.

Expect to be impressed. And expect grandparents to be jealous that the Reading Warehouse wasn't around when they were chasing down summer reading.
